Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Non-Dead Leon + Elton

I had some dealings w/ Joe Cocker w/Leon Russle and the 20 or so MAD DOGS, as it happened my best friends were a very very close family friend of Dee Anthony who was the road / tour manager for Ten Years After, The Nice, Joe Cocker and eventually Peter Framton. Getting back to LEON, he was both
great on guitar and piano. The best was spring weekend at New PALTZ w/ some blues bands and then the Youngbloods. Sunday if memory serves me was the Airplane and then was Joe Cocker w/ all on stage and they even brought out their bus driver to play harp on a couple of tunes.Also on the Youngbloods Rock festival album reverese is a crowd shot w/ me in plain site.I never turned that connection to any pro work it was all just hang time w/ some big time rockers.
